Graft Project
Decentralized, Real-time Credit, Debit, and Crypto Payment Processing Network

What is Graft?
Graft is a global, open-sourced, blockchain-based, decentralized payment gateway and processing platform that anyone can use. Any buyer and merchant can use Graft in a completely decentralized and inexpensive way. Graft ecosystem is open, so anyone can participate by maintaining Graft blockchain and implementing network services. Graft employs payment processing protocols and flows similar to traditional electronic payment systems such as credit, debit, and prepaid cards, which are already familiar to and trusted by millions of users and merchants around the world. This approach enables easier and faster adoption of Graft as a mainstream payment platform, while eliminating the need in centralized intermediaries (payment gateways and processors) currently required to facilitate transactions between buyers and merchants.

GRAFT is short for Global Real-time Authorizations and Fund Transfers, but also represents grafting of the new into the old.

GRAFT Blockchain is built on the idea that the payment industry can benefit tremendously from the democratization brought forward by the blockchain technology, but only when the right technologies are chosen and combined with the accepted industry workflows and systems.
When done correctly, this transition to blockchain-based payments will lead to radically improved credit/debit payment system through the combination of lower transaction fees, tight privacy controls, low rates on credit balances, and connected extra services.

GRAFT Blockchain is a socially responsible organization, introduces a decentralized, real-time payment processor and services platform into the global market covering a wide variety of credit and debit payment use cases.

GRAFT software that is not subjecto to shared intellectual property (IP) or under an NDA is under an open source license. GRAFT Foundation is a non-for-profit entity, and we intend to operate as such unless we’re forced to change status by the governing laws of the land.

Impact
We believe a Blockchain like GRAFT can have a far reaching social and economic impact, removing friction from the systems and enabling new use cases. To provide a few examples:
Many new merchants (especially small businesses) able to offer electronic payments
Underbanked consumers able to get a credit facility and pay electronically
Consumers able to save on variety of fees such as international transaction fees
Businesses that conventional banks won’t underwrite able to offer credit and electronic payments
Consumers benefitting from significantly lower credit card borrowing costs resulting from peer lending
